Greetings!

While development for Dragonflight Mythic+ is still ongoing, we wanted to give players a look at our progress and are currently planning a limited Mythic+ test this weekend.

The test period will begin Friday Oct 7th at 16:00 PDT (19:00 EDT, 01:00 CEST), and end Monday October 10th at 16:00 PDT (19:00 EDT, 01:00 CEST). During this time, you’ll be able to test two dungeons on Mythic+ (Ruby Life Pools and The Azure Vault), along with a prototype Seasonal affix tentatively named “Thundering”. Note that this affix is still undergoing iteration and may change considerably from week to week.

During the test period you’ll be able to acquire and customize Mythic Keystones by talking to the Keystone Vendor in Stormwind or Orgrimmar. We look forward to hearing your feedback!

And if you’d like more information about the changes coming with Dragonflight Mythic+, you can check out this post on the Community Council forums which contains details about difficulty and reward changes, thoughts on Seasonal affixes, and more!

Quick answers to these questions:

  • Mythic+ testing will be available on all Beta servers for this round
  • There is a Dungeon Teleporter who will appear near the Keystone Vendor
  • We ran into an issue deploying a hotfix needed to make the Keystone Vendor available, and are working to address the issue ASAP. We’ll post a server message as soon as testing opens up. Apologies for the delay!

We’re still working on the above issue and making good progress, and we expect to have it fixed today.

Thanks for your patience!

Just to update, this is “mostly” working now but we’re aware some folks have had difficulties with the Dungeon Teleporter. We’re in the process of deploying an additional fix to make it play nice more consistently.

Once again appreciate everyone’s patience with the dungeon teleport hiccups. We’ll continue to keep an eye on any additional issues with this NPC, and also plan to add some quality of life improvements for future rounds of testing (like preventing players from mounting on top of the NPC). If you’re still having trouble using the dungeon teleporter, please include your Realm and Faction in your report.

I also want to acknowledge all the great and thoughtful comments here especially around Seasonal affixes and the current “Thundering” prototype. We’re glad we could offer an early look at our development process with this test, and we hope to have more tests like it as we continue to review your input and make changes.

Also if you have feedback on either of the dungeons available this weekend, you’re more than welcome to post it here in addition to your thoughts on the affix and Mythic+ in general.

Thank you!

This weekend’s round of Mythic+ testing has concluded. Thank you everyone for taking the time to play and share your thoughts!

As mentioned previously we’re still very much in development for Dragonflight Mythic+ and have work to do before our next test, but we’ll let you all know as soon as we’re ready for it. Next round should include another 1-2 dungeons, Seasonal affix changes, and hopefully a much more reliable dungeon teleport NPC.

Good call on the repair issue, I forget to mention that. We plan to have a buff applied for future rounds of Mythic+ testing that prevents equipment durability loss.
